We are excited to announce the launch of the EdTech Impact Advisory Group, dedicated to promoting and supporting World Education’s vision of advancing digital equity in today’s increasingly tech-enabled world. The Impact Advisory Group will support World Education and its award-winning EdTech Center to expand its networks, launch new pilot projects, and benefit from thought partnerships from those outside of the organization who bring a fresh perspective and new ideas. The Advisory Group will be convened and coordinated by the EdTech Center @ World Education’s leadership in close collaboration with all WEI divisions – US, Africa, Asia, and Bantwana.
The Impact Advisors are a diverse and talented group from different parts of the world, representing a wide array of focus areas, all with a deep commitment to digital equity.
